My Only Four Suits: Keep, Tailor, or Trash? (Photos) - Page 2

post #16 of 39
Mauby - your avatar is the only reason I watch womens volleyball.

The vintage suit looks good in the torso, but the sleeves may be a little short.

what possessed you to get 4 grey suits?

I don't know if a tailor can open the quarters of a suit, but your suits look boxy to me due to the closed quarters.

I'm the least partial to #3... I think it's not as good as the others.
I'm all for cuff but I think that the ebay vintage sleeves are a tad short. When wearing something like that (statement), it's got to fit very very well. Also, that pattern definately has the most character.
Length of the jacket is a tad short, but closer to where it should be as compared to the other three, which IMO are all a bit too long...
But my overall thoughts are they're all passable, not overly great or bad.
As for the tie, change it up to navy, burgandy rep, etc...

thats due to his posture; he is standing very erect with arm/hand hanging irregularly...

tailors can open up quarters of a suit to a certain limit (by buttoning positions). but one other cause is that he has a pronounced chest throwing off the balance of the suit.

What are you trying to do to this person?

# 1, 3, and 4 look ok. not perfect, but not too bad.

That vintage one looks amazing, I love the fit of it except for the sleeve length which looks a tick on the short side. Still, just a great looking suit all around if you ask me.

I would definatley keep that 2nd suit and perhaps the 4th. the second dosen't look lik eit needs much done to it and the forth is a nie suit. There all nice but since they are close to the same color and style as ne another I would not keep all of them.

IMO All the suits could stand to be taken in slightly at the waist, apart from the TaT.

As I take another look, keep buttoning the upper, but I agree that you may want to branch out into another color like Navy. Also, stay away from Ravi. I did some business with him in the past and despite seeming to listen to the things I asked for, nothing turned out well.

In general, I think more open quarters would look better on you.
post #29 of 39
Probably not what you want to hear, but I would toss them all.

You're tall and thin, there's a ton of RTW that would look great on you.

I know you probably like it, but I wish there were a law against pink ties. Get yourself a burgundy tie with some sort of paisley or chequered pattern on it. Maybe a burgundy plaid for the ebay outfit.
